Brussels Airlines suspends flights over coronavirus pandemic

Due to travel restrictions as a result of the global outbreak of the new coronavirus COVID-19, Brussels Airlines has suspended its flights.

According to a press statement by the airline’s CEO, Dieter Vranckx, the Belgian carrier will suspend its operations from 21 March until 19 April.

“All passengers with a ticket booked before or on 31 March (with flights until 31 December – whether cancelled or not) can rebook their ticket until 31 August, to another travel date until 1 year after your original ticket purchase (or until 31 December 2020 whichever comes first),” the statement said.

“Furthermore, if you would like, you can also modify the origin and/or destination of your ticket. If you are interested in this possibility, there’s nothing you need to do right now. Simply contact us before 31 August, when you have decided when you want to fly again. This way you can reschedule worry-free, without time pressure.”

The airline took the difficult decision due the unprecedented circumstances and expressed its regrets for the inconveniences it may cause its customers.

“Finally, we would like to thank you for your trust in these challenging times. The health and safety of you and your loved ones always remain our highest priority, and we will never compromise on this commitment,” the statement concluded.
